This study investigates the application of night ventilation techniques in ten urban canyons, situated in the extended region of Athens, Greece.
Geros V, Santamouris M, Guarracino G
In the framework of SOLVENT project, work was carried out to develop strategies and dissemination material to assist the efficient application of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings.

The Building Regulations with regard to the energy performance of buildings in the Netherlands is an attempt to a performance oriented requirement in conjunction with a test standard. The test standard in fact means a calculation procedure.

The aim is to develop a new method for comfort in settings with high thermal load in buildings that do not require continuous cooling but cooling only during shorter periods. Example of such buildings is schools.
Wigo H, Sandberg M
This paper summarizes part of the work held at ENTPE within the framework of the IEA Annex 35 project.
Elmankibi M, Michel P, Guarracino G
Dynamic insulation is a very good example of a ventilation system integrated with the building envelope. The paper describes two recent studies carried out at Nottingham on dynamic insulation.
Clare A, Etheridge D
The Coolhouse project is exploring the viability of alternatives to air-conditioning in southern European countries using innovative passive and low energy cooling and ventilating techniques, with an emphasis on ground cooling.
Burton S, McCartney D
For over 20 years, the AIVC has been a key player in developments in technical knowledge on ventilation and related issues, and has always been very active in the dissemination of information.

When studying improvements on room by room air conditioning appliances (RAC), it is necessary to know for how long these appliances function and which is their effectiveness - EER - on average (or Seasonal) known as SEER.
Riviere P, Adnot J, Orphelin M
DCV systems have proved to be energy saving with correct IAQ in previous studies. In order to achieve correct performance, these systems must be properly designed and tested.
Vialle P, Jardinier M, Pelleter X
This paper is an overview of the work carried out during a 3year EPSRC funded project investigating the important factors in Supply Air window design. The structure and some of the main conclusions of this work are presented here.
McEvoy M, Southall R
In this paper, measurement and simulation results are presented that demonstrate the energy performance of a recently built ecological house in Helsinki, Finland.
Simonson C
In this paper the experimental results of the measurements obtained after the completion of a test room realised in the laboratories of the Dipartimento di Energetica dell'Universit di Ancona and the development of the monitoring system are report

The airtightness performances of buildings and ventilation systems can have a major impact on the indoor climate (IAQ, thermal comfort,...) and on the energy performance.
Delmotte C, van Orshoven D, Wouters P
Increased global warming and deterioration of the ozone layer have stimulated interest in the use of renewable energy systems.
Elmualim A, Awbi H
The main problem in natural ventilation is that its efficiency depends very tightly on the meteorological conditions : high wind velocity and outside temperature lower than inside are optimal conditions for efficient ventilation.
Berthin S
Earth-air heat exchangers can be used to reduce energy consumption in building ventilation systems. The idea is to pre-heat air in winter and pre-cool air in summer using the thermal capacity of the soil.
